    I welcome the limited 2nd fabric. Personally, I found it difficult to find blocks that used the amount that we were sent. Much prefer the paint chip method of showing desired colors.

This is strictly a shipping/packing issue. I'm sorry if some of you are disappointed but I'm sticking with the small 6.5 x 6.5 inch piece. Remember, it's supposed to be up to the block maker to make what she wants to make with your f8. Many of us have begun strictly directing the finished product with multiple fabrics and that's seriously infringing on my ability to ship easily. The harder it gets, the less I'm inclined to do it. My other option is to tell everyone I'm going to only use boxes to ship at over 14 bucks a pop. That's a lot of extra money. Anyway, until everyone says they're ok with nearly doubling the shipping costs, I'm saying "no" to larger second and third pieces. I hope you all understand. Thanks!
    I don't seem to find an issue with the one f8th piece of fabric when making blocks. I don't send extra and I am doing this so I can create with what I am given. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this and I wouldn't do it if I had to pay extra for shipping extra fabrics.

    Yea! I'm officially signed up! Have to go to an event with DH today so not a lot of time to pick out my fabric. I drag him to several quilt shows a year, so I need to cheerfully go to a few Outdoors shows with him.

    He did offer to stop at a quilt shop on the way - it's one I really like but don't get to very often. However I really, really don't need to be buying any more fabric for stash!
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    When I was planning on adding an extra piece, I wasn't sure what size to make it. I decided on 7 x 7 and already have it cut and packaged. I hope this isn't a problem. I have it in the gallon sized bag and everything fits perfect. Sorry I jumped the gun.

    Klaws, please go with the 7x7 piece since they're cut and packaged. Don't give it another thought. In the future, I'll specify the size up front, that was a goof on my part. No worries! Thanks!

    Maricalee, you aren't the only cost conscious one here, trust me on that.

    Macybaby, enjoy the show and the "side trip" if you decide to stop in. Window shopping at an LQS can be frustrating if you succeed and costly if you don't. It'd be a toss up which I'd prefer.

    Kassaundra, I never told you how beautiful your brown and white is coming. I love your curved pieces.

    Edited to add: I meant to show this to you a couple of weeks ago. This is the glass I blew at my class. (I had a great deal of help from the instructor but I did do the blowing.) Various shades of pink and prettier than it appears here. And heavy!

    Janice, that blown glass is gorgeous, especially the swirls around the top! I've watched the process done on the science channel and I am always amazed

    Which should I send for the second fabric? The boom fabric is the repeat print. I couldn’t resist this fabric as it spoke to me: what would Kassaundra do with this fabric?

    There is is no orange in the boom fabric but it reads as orange.

    I dont think Im going to send paint chips, I’ll just have you match or blend with any color in the fabric except white. Name:  93A3E9EC-6DE2-485E-A764-DC4530A5D418.jpeg

    I had fun playing w/ that fabric in a different color last boom, look at the dunes photo gallery in Pamela's pics. It is a fun print to fussy cut for sure, looking forward to playing w/ it again.

    Cathy welcome and you are my neighbor I live in Minnesota

    Janice the blown glass is so pretty.

    MJP your bright fabric is going to be fun to work with. Can’t tell for sure by your fabric but if that is a bright red orange on the right side of your picture it will go perfectly with my color request for my purples.

Janice I think I have 20 pieces of my fabric for the 2 month if we need to double up. Will we mail before postage goes up??

    I love the block you did Givio I did this block tonight and decided I liked the pink fabric. The darkest fabric is actually dark pink. It was my second foray into eight pointed star. I used the Marti Mitchell perfect templates. I felt guilty about buying these and not using them so Iím happy I had an excuse. The block is a from the Tula pink city blocks. I donít piece that often so this was a stretch for me. I usually design my own blocks but it was fun putting these two designers together. And the block got me motivated to quilt again. I think the glass of wine I had before I started helped.

    Im looking forward to the boom.

    Thank you for the lovely compliments about the glass. I've wanted to learn how to do this for most of my life, not that one class is anywhere near actually learning how but who knows if it will lead to something new. I might try a bowl next!

    Love your fussy cut block, Givio.

    Brrrr, Joanelizbay. That's a lot of snow!

    Yes, I anticipate you'll be able to mail before the rates jump up on 1/27 to $8 but everyone needs to be sure to mail me the new amount. Please wait for me to close the sign-ups and give you the ok before you ship. It's going to get a bit crazy around here as when your pkgs start coming in, I'm going to have workers in the house for a week. Everyone should definitely make sure they email me with tracking numbers as soon as you get them. Please do not just ship without alerting me! I plan to be standing at the mailbox as each and every one comes in.

    Hav4boys as jumped into the 2 month group as well as being in the 3. That makes 11 people. Yay! Is there anyone else in the 3 month who wishes to add the 2 month? Or does anyone want to switch from the 3 to the 2? We've got one person on the waiting list for the 3 and she's already in the 2. Let me know. Changes at this point are perfectly ok. It's not so easy once I shut down the sign-ups.

    mjp, the star almost seems to be made of a different fabric than the border! The border has a nice continuous red line going in it that looks great, even around the corner. I'll bet it looks better in person. Wonderful work!
